Chorizo and Seafood Paella

Sometimes you are so hungry that you don't take enough pictures. But believe me, this paella was so good, please try it!




Ingredients serves 4-5


- 1 onion

- 2 cloves of garlic

- 2 chopped tomatoes

- 1 diced bell pepper

- 1 chili

- 150g chorizo sausage

- 100g of shrimp

- 9-12 clams

- 750ml Chicken stalk

- Olive oil

- 250 g of Paella rice ( you can also use risotto rice)

- 2 tablespoons of Paella spice mix (contains: saffon, smoked paprika, cumin, turmeric, black pepper, cayenne pepper, rosemary)

- Bunch of Parsley

- 1-2 Lemons



Instructions:


First, over medium heat start by placing your cut chorizo meat on the pan and add oil if necessary but normally the chorizo meat let’s out a lot of fat already.


Once they have cooked for 5-7 minutes remove them.


With the left-over oil cook the chopped onion, bell pepper, chili and garlic. After this add the chopped tomatoes and cook until you have a loose paste consistency and remove it from the pan.


Now with a little bit of olive oil cook your rice on the pan until it goldens a bit.


Heat the chicken stalk in a separate pot.


Add the paste and chorizo back into the pan and cover the rice with a little bit of chicken stalk. To this mixture add 1 tablespoon of the paella seasoning.


Every time you notice the water evaporating add a little more + the other tablespoon of your paella seasoning mix.


Optional: add a dash of white wine to bell pepper, tomatoe, onion mixture.


Side note: If you can’t find all the different spices then one tablespoon of smoked paprika and ½ teaspoon of saffron will also work + salt and pepper to taste



Who are the chefs?


I hope I will someday be the mother in law of this beautiful and smart girl.

Nicole is a multinational and multitalented young woman. Her roots are in Finland, Italy, Ecuador, etc..


With our son Eric, they have a tremendous passion for food. (One of the many)

This time some Spanish music was playing and all I could hear was the noise of the cutting knife and the cheerful sound of the frying pan.


I was very happy to do the dishes, after all.


Buen apetito amigos!

I like to play with the thought that someday Nicole and Eric will have their own restaurant called D`Ercole and me and Romina (mother of Nicole) will entertain the customers. Something to hope for when getting older!
